IBM’s recognition in the 2022 Gartner Magic Quadrant for Primary Storage.

Fifteen times. For the fifteenth consecutive time, IBM has achieved an industry-leading position in the 2022 Gartner Magic Quadrant for Primary Storage.

“We are honored, once again, to have been named a Leader in the Gartner Magic Quadrant for Primary Storage,” said Scott Baker, IBM Vice President of Product Marketing. “We believe this recognition is a testament to the innovative solutions we provide to our clients.”

How does a Gartner Magic Quadrant work?

A Magic Quadrant provides a graphical competitive positioning of four types of technology providers in markets where growth is high and provider differentiation is distinct:

  • Leaders execute well against their current vision and are well-positioned for tomorrow.
  • Visionaries understand where the market is going or have a vision for changing market rules but do not yet execute well.
  • Niche Players focus successfully on a small segment or are unfocused and do not out-innovate or outperform others.
  • Challengers execute well today or may dominate a large segment, but do not demonstrate an understanding of market direction.

Good news for customers—and IBM

IBM has an unparalleled legacy in data storage, with inventions that include the floppy disk, the hard disk drive, magnetic stripe readers and more.
